  1. Pattern of out of control sexual behavior.
  2. Severe consequences due to sexual behavior.
  3. Inablilty to stop despite adverse consequences.
  4. Persistent pursuit of self-destructive or high-risk behavior.
  5. Ongoing desire or effort to limit sexual behavior.
  6. Sexual obsession and fantasy as a primary coping strategy.
  7. Increasing amounts of sexual experience because the current level of activity is no longer sufficient.
  8. Severe mood changes around sexual activity.
  9. Inordinate amounts of time spent in obtaining sex, being sexual, or recovering from sexual experience.
  10. Neglect of important social, occupational or recreational activities because of sexual behavior.
